    It's a shooter

    Seems I got my order in just in time. Got my rifle mid-December before delays started. Obviously new CMP wood. SA WWII-era dupe range receiver 2449###
    SA 11/43 barrel. Muzzle=1 Throat=2+ Probably the original?

    Trigger housing is the one major part that is not SA. D28290-W.R.A. Type 1 w/ round hole
    Receiver: D 28291 32 52A
    Bolt: D28287-12SA RE5B
    Hammer: C46008-3 SA Type 2C
    Safety: rounded with hole and no markings
    Follower rod: SA Type 4
    Op rod: D35382 9-SA No letter uncut
    Windage knob has DRC on it and the elevation is WCE.

    GI wood would've been nice, but you can't be choosy through the mail.

    How it's rate? Anything unique stand out?

        I like this forum better already. Pictures visible within posts.

        First group @ 25 yards


        Realized elevation was still a couple clicks from bottomed out, then


        Then out to 100 yards





        I'm okay with that. It was a breezy day too.

          Thanks for sharing photos of this beautiful example.
          Looks like a nice uncut -9 op rod. The barrel is actually quite a bit early for the receiver. A 2.44 million should be around June, 1944. Very interesting!
          Nice typical group for a solid service rifle. Sure to be an heirloom if you want it to be.
          Shoot it and enjoy it!!

              Notice in the first picture ,large area on front ring where the forging did not clean up during machining. Seen this in small areas usually corners .Nice looking rifle

                  I suspect a typo, but Jan '44 not June. Dec '43 ended with 2420191 and Jan '44 ended with 2543412.

                  Awesome rifle! If it were mine, though, I'd be hunting for GI wood. Then I'd take that new wood to my buddy's house and throw it in his wood burner and let it heat the house for a while.

                    print this target off and use it, you will see your group size get smaller with it. Use a 6 OClock hold
